DEUTZ TO SUPPLY ENGINES FOR NEW SANY WHEEL LOADERS
Deutz has announced it will supply its TCD 7.8 diesel engines for Sany’s new SW405 wheel loaders.
The water-cooled, six-cylinder, in-line engines range from 250 to 390 horsepower and a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. The TCD 7.8 diesel engines meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 and E.U. Stage IV emissions standards, and also fulfill the E.U.’s upcoming Stage V standards which will go into effect in 2019.
“Deutz engines are in many of the road construction machines used in the Chinese market,” said Kevin Grover, large excavator and wheel loader NPI manager at Sany America. “We looked at a few different suppliers, but the Deutz engine had an ideal torque curve for a wheel loader application. Furthermore, we feel the Deutz engine’s quality and responsiveness will help our machines truly perform at an optimum level.”
“With Deutz’s Stage-V-ready engines, our machines are all set for the next round of emissions legislation,” Grover said. “We won’t have to go through another extensive design cycle when the new emissions regulations do take effect.”
“We designed our TCD 7.8 diesel engines to offer our OEMs customers greater flexibility and lower installation costs,” said Robert Mann, Deutz president/CEO. “Because these engines are both compact and modular, OEMs who choose them for their machines can develop more versatile designs to answer a broader range of end user needs.”
